It was Captain Marryat of the Royal Navy and famous novelist who introduced the beverage into the British Isles, and below we quote his recipe in his own words: “One of the most delightful and insinuating potations that ever was invented, and maybe drunk with equal satisfaction when the thermometer is as low as 70 degrees.”
